they're gonna "shock the world?"  Then dude man at the end says it should be called "the little house on the prairie."  Poor guy, I don't think he realizes what is about to hit him.

Time to hang 70 on 'em.

Yeah, seriously?  Little house on the prairie?  How many doesn the UMass stadium hold, 12,000?  We have that many in our press box. 

Now I hope we make them look like Delaware State's little brother.

I can't wait until we have 2 Texas-sized videoboards at opposite ends of the stadium.  Those scoreboards are the last vestige of a pre-expansion Big House.  They need to get bigger-er too.  I'm sure Brandon's office is on it.

I think they know they don't have a shot (please dear God let that be true). What else are they going to say, "We're gonna get our clocks cleaned"? You can tell they were in awe of that glorious stadium and seemed like nice kids.  "That's a big screen! They got two of them!" 

Is it tomorrow yet?

You got it.  You also have to remember that this is the biggest stadium any of these kids have ever played in.  In fact, the largest crowd to ever watch a UMass football game was 53,000 at Texas Tech a few years ago.  The 4th and 5th largest crowds to ever watch any UMass athletic event were for Men's Lacrosse.  There is probably just one kid who has ever played in a stadium close to that big, and that would be the Syracuse transfer who I'm guessing played at ND a couple years ago.  Otherwise, this is a first for most of the players.  I'd want to take pictures of the BIGGEST House, too.  Imagine - the seating capacity is NINE TIMES that of their home field and more than DOUBLE the previous largest crowd in UMass history.  This is a big deal for these kids.  They're just trying to acquit themselves well tomorrow.

Sorry #11, Mr.'s going to be a long day for you on the prairie.  Hope you brought your running shoes.  At least you will "Look pretty".

Well, according to the guys on 'Around the Horn' today,UMass held Armanti Edwards to about 230 yards a couple years ago, so they'll contain Denard tomorrow.  Of course, they also mentioned, ominously, that the last time Michigan played an FCS team at home, it was...Appalachian State.  More ESPN greatness.

Well at least they can talk the talk, but the nation will see if Mich can walk the walk, yes I said the nation, believe it or not people want to see if our Mich Men are for real...everyone I've talk to says there gonna watch this game(at least in Cols Ohio) there are some Buckeyes that want to see the Wolvs fall flat on there faces...I know its a FCS team.. I realize that they dont compare athlete to athlete....but Dont take this game lightly....We have to prove that not only are we on our way back, but  have to show consistantacy!!!!!!!!!!!  GO BLUE IN COLUMBUS, OHIO.........  O-H-Hell-NO!!!!!
